I’ve been using the Global Pinoy Center in SM Baguio. I use the center to access the internet, chat with my sister in Australia, sometimes even video conference using Skype.
In this article, I give a video tour of the Global Pinoy Center in SM Baguio. It features a comfortable lounge, BDO Remittance services, Free computer+internet use for members, FREE wi-fi (exclusive for members, password protected), Free IDD calls (for a limited period), a cellphone charging station and free drinks (coffee or iced tea).
To avail of these services, just fill-up a form, present a valid ID and pay P150 for the membership card.

Here are excerpts from an article about the Global Pinoy Center from the SM Investments Corp Website:
The Global Pinoy Center is a one-stop shop for services specifically tailored for the Global Pinoy and his family’s needs. By being a member of the program, one will enjoy the following:
1. Info services. A Global Pinoy member can get valuable information such as investment opportunities. The center also accommodates several terminals with direct access to government employment agencies like POEA, OWWA and DOLE, making it easier for them to finish their paperwork and to get important materials from the International Electrotechnical Commission. Also, since the center is situated inside the mall, it permits applicants to procure necessary information without difficulty.
2. Remittances through BDO. The member’s family can pick up remittances directly from their loved ones, even on weekends and holidays, creating instant hassle-free transactions.
3. Communication. The GPC is a contact point for present and former OFWs, balikbayans, and their relatives. At the GPC, families of OFW can talk to their family members overseas using email, chat, and videoconferencing for free.
Each member is given a Global Pinoy card which entitles him and his family P80,000 worth of discounts in education, health services, hotels, restaurants and various shops. For example, a member may avail 20 percent off on tuition fee in Asia Pacific College or 15 percent off in National University.
The Global Pinoy card lets OFWs and their families enjoy rewards, discounts and freebies from SM Supermalls and other partner establishments. It also grant access to the Global Pinoy Center lounge and to several fun events and informative seminars held by SM Cares, making every family’s stay at SM Supermalls worthwhile.
Any overseas Filipino worker who has an active contract abroad is qualified for membership. All one has to do is completely fill out the Global Pinoy membership application form and submit it with any valid ID (for Global Pinoys and former Global Pinoy) or any ID and proof of remittance (for beneficiaries) at any Global Pinoy Center.
